Popis The paper presents a discussion of the semantics of motion situations in which the agentive executor of the motion takes up two syntactic slots, hence takes up two argument positions. This is the case in transitive autocausative structures, in which the concept of the executor of motion is broken down into the agentive self taking up the subject position and the patientive self taking up the direct object position.
